The 2022 Japanese Grand Prix marks the return of Formula 1 to Suzuka for the first time since 2019 after the last two iterations of the event were cancelled due to Covid-19, so make sure you know where to watch the Japanese GP on TV in the UK, USA and Australia.
Red Bull have won each of the last six Grand Prix and Suzuka could see Max Verstappen crowned F1 world champion should the result go his way. But he would have to finish ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez.
After disappointment in Singapore, Ferrari will be hoping to keep the Red Bull champagne on ice, for another week at least.
